Thanksgiving Ginger & Carrot Soup

Thanksgiving is just around the corner guys!!
Even though I have been living away from my family for almost 8 yrs now, I still cherish this holiday, since it brings me back to those times when my sister and I had to clean the house, and help mom cook the Thanksgiving dinner and have everything set for when the rest of the family arived.

On this holiday I could usually smell Christmas on the air...and the joy of having night of celebrations, board games and amazing comfort food.

I wanted to share a very delicious soup I learned to make a while back.
 I think it could be a great starter for your Thanksgiving dinner, plus it's super easy!!

Delicious Fridge Oats

When I first found out about this healthy snack, I knew immediately I would like it. Oatmeal, yogurt, fruits and granola? Hell yeah! Plus it seemed like very easy to make and thank God it is, cause I spend enough time already in the kitchen now that I
have learned how to bake all kinds of things...but back to the oats, here is the recipe:
1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
1cup of milk
1/2 cup of greek yogurt ( i personally use vanilla flavored)
These ratios double if you want to  make more obviously.
Cinammon and little brown sugar are optional yet recommended.
add the fruit of your choice
Mix the ingredients together in a container and leave in the fridge overnight.

When serving, top with granola, raisins or any nuts of your preference.
Something crunchy is highly recommended! ;)

You are welcome!

Pumkin Patch

Halloween is just around the corner and 
this is the first time in a long time
that I feel completely thrilled!
There is something about having a child
that makes you feel the excitement of 
all the holidays!
You start to feel the same way you used to
when you were a kid.
The rush of getting dressed up for Halloween with your friends,
 knocking on neighbors doors for candy and toys,
feeling the creepy air and hearing the "boooohs"
Gosh it was fun!

About Summer, Outfits and Love

Sometimes Miami is too hot to even go outside...
The weather here is ever changing, it starts very sunny and around noon
thunder comes making you think 
that a hurricane is definitely coming.



And then there are days
like this...
where the sun shines very bright, but doesn't burn.
And you feel lucky to live in such a state.


Well, I have to admit I feel lucky everyday.
I have the most beautiful and loving home.
We dont live in the best neighborhood, 
we dont buy expensive clothes
and we dont have a fancy lifestyle.


But we have the sweetest of moments together.
We find joy in whatever we do.
We cherish our moments in silence while watching a movie and Gianni is sound asleep.
We love talking to each other without the TV while having dinner.
We are very passionate when fighting and I hate my husband everytime we do.
And I love that, cause I still care..I still feel passionate about this relationship 
and I still feel we are meant for each other. 
I know we will grow very old together.
I am the richest person.
I inherited this outfit from a great friend.
The fedora has been with me for ages.
Thank you friend!
